Gluten Legs – common cause of eczema

Gluten Legs Before Diet

When I first started my career as a Paediatrician, I used to feel dread when a child like this, with severe eczema all over his/her body, came into my clinic to see me.  Back then I didn’t know what to do.  I had been taught (by dermatologists) that the only thing to do was to prescribe creams, potions and steroids, in the hope that this might help – and if it didn’t help, well, just carry on with the same advice, with more of the same, or … [Read more...]

Slices of bread for a gluten challenge - Dr Rodney Ford

Gluten-ZERO-Diet: change our language

Dr-Rodney-Ford ZERO gluten

My recommendation is to change the gluten-language that we have been using. The term "gluten-free" has been used for decades.  However, the meaning of words ‘gluten-free’ have been diluted.  It almost has the connotation of ‘not-much-gluten’.  It has the suggestion that ‘a-little-gluten-does-not-matter’ or ‘you-are-free-to-give-up-gluten-if-you-want-to'. I see so many parents who say that their children are 90-95% gluten -free.  But for excellent … [Read more...]
